Brinjal Raita is made with roasted brinjals, curd and spices. It is easy to make and tastes very delicious. It can be had as a side dish for parathas, rotis, sambar sadam and even biryani. Today we will learn how to make brinjal yogurt raita following this easy recipe.
Wash and wipe the brinjals dry. Apply a thin coating of oil all over the brinjal.
Insert a fork of knife inside the brinjal and roast it on fire until the brinjal becomes charred on all the sides as seen in the picture below. Drop it in a bowl of water to cool.
Once it cools, remove the black charred skin completely. Then chop the brinjal flesh into small pieces.
In a bowl, mix together chopped brinjal flesh, whisked curd, 1/4 tsp roasted cumin powder and salt needed.
Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, when it splutters, turn off the heat and then add chilli powder, curry leaves and pour it over the raita. Mix well.
